Living in the world, there is no noise of cars and horses.Ask me why? As long as the mind is high, it will naturally feel that the place is secluded.——Tao Yuanming
The project is located at the corner of the old street of Tongji Road,foshan,hidden in the lush trees.The structure of old buildings is complex,Irregular appearance.The indoor columns are not the same size.Under this kind of restriction,how to keep the mottled traces of the building,combining the spatial diversity of functional planning,give it a unique soul and color,it’s a challenge for designers.
“Time and time again ,I searched for you in the crowd .Suddenly ,I spun round and saw the very you standing amidst thin lights.”——Xin Qiji
Walking under the trees on the street, I could see a transparent glass box with warmth, there is no cumbersome appearance for decoration, especially fascinating. Under the shadow of light, the exquisite lion head logo and the ancient pillars complement each other, and the simple beauty reaches the people’s heart.
Suddenly smell the smell of coffee coming out of a wooden passage, looking for the fragrance, a white color peeped out from the crack, the stone lion in front of the door, in the soft light, seems to be immersed in thoughts. If you look down, will feel that white is like a lion’s tail dancing in the air, leaping and leaping, and swimming in the space flexibly, can’t see the end at a glance, can’t help but make people curious to go inside.
“Trapped in a cage for a long time without freedom, I finally return to nature today.”——Tao Yuanming
What you can see is the square bar in the center, which can be sat around. The cement column in the center extends infinitely along the mirror, look at yourself in the reflection, one empty and one real, look at the tiredness of people in the mirror, think about the mediocrity of people outside the mirror. There are different forms around the bar, In this state full of traces of the years, it seems particularly natural, the collision between the new and the old is no longer opposition, but tolerance. Even people who have never met before can live in harmony and have a good talk under this tolerance.
“Cloud static can be leisurely, water static nurture all things.”——Anonymous person
Next to the bar through the crack in the door, on the windowsill of dialogue with nature, In a closable private space, In the booth area at the corner of the wall, sitting by the window, in the long coffee fragrance, empty yourself, leave a corner for the soul.In the vast world, the noise makes people uneasy. Lao Tzu said, “all things return to their roots .returning to its root is called tranquility, which is called returning to life.” In the final analysis, stillness is the root of life. When you are calm, you will be clear. When you are calm, you can see your true self.
With old tiles, Ingeniously combined with the light bulb, the old objects will glow with new vitality and become a unique symbol of space.Through layers of glass in the middle of the old wood, continue to move forward, break through the shackles of space, extend the vision, add some interest and publicity to the space.
Taking the gate as the starting point, combined with the function, it forms a high and low undulating form, which runs through the whole space. Corresponding to the action concept of First Quality coffee, make a valuable gift for guests from one to the end!
